Mouse Deer has a light brown coat at the front and dark brown at back. His chest and legs are white and his eyes are brown. His inner eyes are pink, and his hooves and nose are black.
Mouse Deer is small yet very serious. He knows all about Mama Binturong and her porcupines who stole Makini's Bakora Staff and the rest of her Tuliza. He isn't fond of those who point at him, deeming it impolite. He is shown to be kind-hearted and intelligent however.
